Whenever I start up Fedora, GNOME Software shows that I have an update for my T14s Gen 2’s firmware from 0.0.9 to 0.1.13. I found a similar post made before but the solution isn’t apparent.
In case it matters, my laptop is dual booted with Windows 10 and Fedora 35 encrypted with LUKS. I notice when booting up my computer there are now two Fedora options that are nearly identical in name. I haven’t booted into the new installation since I’m not sure what it would do, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
If I’m not mistaken, vendor of your hardware need to push an update to https://fwupd.org/ to make user be able to update their firmware. If they (vendor) didn’t push the update, it will not available for user.
If it related to bios (including uefi firmware), may be you could find the windows version and update it from there.
As I understand this (witch might be wrong), Ubuntu solves the problem with a signed fwupd package. Seems to make sense to be able to load the firmeware updater with SecureBoot enabled.
Could this also be a solution for Fedora?
Edit: I don’t consider disabling SecureBoot to be an appropriate solution (its just the only current workaround I could find): firmware updates should be possible while enjoying the protections provided by SecureBoot.
Has there been any word about this, up or downstream. I’m experiencing the same secure-boot issue on my ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9, which “officially” supports Fedora. I know @mattdm also has an X1 carbon, and I’m sure there are others in this forum. Have you all been experiencing this?
